Since it was New Jersey to initially challenge the PASPA and take the case to the Supreme Court, the vast majority of sports gamblers in the U.S. owes The Garden State a debt of gratitude. We just would not be here today if it wasn’t for New Jersey.
And make no mistake, New Jersey has not held back in any way when it comes to legal sports gambling. Their industry is completely up and running, and the state is now rivaling Nevada in handle and revenue.
Statewide Brick and Mortar Sportsbooks
It didn’t take long after the PASPA was overturned for the brick and mortar sportsbooks of New Jersey to open their doors. In fact, the construction of the sportsbook in Monmouth Park began well before the decision even came down.
Almost two years later, there are over 10 brick and mortar sportsbooks open for business in the state with more to come.
